Hey everyone!!! Today I’m super, duper excited to be here with my friend Amie ,from Crazy A!
About the Author:
Amie is a wild, crazy writer who is either daydreaming or talking a hundred miles an hour. When she is not doing those two things, she is probably reading or jamming on one of the four instruments she plays. Writing is her overwhelming passion, but she is also passionate about horses, music, acting, photography, blogging, and living life to glorify her Creator and Lord. She is the second oldest of seven children and enjoys being dramatic with her four sisters. Whether it is in Amie’s writing or in her words, she enjoys making people laughing.
Social links (because, y’all.) 😛
About the Book:
Snowball loves apples. When his apple goes missing, he knows that he must find who took it. A charming children’s book with funny pictures, an engaging message, and animals. Perfect for early readers or to read aloud to your 2-5 year old.
Guys, does that not look like the cutest book EVER?!?!? Seriously, it’s adorable!!! 😀
Anyway, I have had the great privilege of interviewing Amie about her book. Here we go!
So Amie, when did you start writing, and why?
I started actually writing at eight, though I’ve always been coming up with stories and trying to write them down. When I was little I would scribble things in a notebook and tell my older brother they were a story. Then when he told me I didn’t write words, I tried to write wordless picture books…But finally, I learned how to spell. I didn’t begin to write seriously until I was twelve, and I started then to help me process and avoid a hard time of my life.
Do you listen to music while writing? If so, what music do you listen to the most?
I do. Throughout writing this book, I mostly listened to Southern Raised, Lawson Bates, and the Bontrager Family Singers.
What is your favorite childhood book?
Ooh, good questions! I loved “The Complete Book of Farmyard Tales” by Usborne. I think that started my love for farming. I also liked Max Lucado’s “Oak Inside the Acorn.”
How do you deal with writer’s block?
Honestly, I don’t know if I’ve ever dealt with writer’s block, though I have been discouraged a few times. Try walking away from a project, and if that doesn’t work, try pressing on. Just write words, and make them into a story.
What would you say to a new writer, who’s struggling?
*clears throat* Listen, it’s hard now, just like after starting to run, you’ll be sore, but after the soreness passes, it’s way worth the work. Just keep pressing on, and don’t look back.
How often do you write?
I write every day, and multiple times a day.
What time of day do you like write?
Mostly early in the morning, mid day, and in the evening. Or in other words, when I can.
Which of the Seven Wonders of the world do you want to visit the most?
The Pyramid, definitely.
Why did you publish this book?
Because I thought it would be fun to let other children read the story my siblings love. And I’m looking forward to reviews. 😀
Do you plan to publish more books in the future?
Lord willing, I do.
Bonus Question: What is your personal opinion on blue cheese?
BLAH. You might love blue cheese, but you can keep it, and PLEASE keep the blue cheese dressing away from the ranch. They look slightly similar, and might be confused.
Thanks for interviewing me, Rosy!
Thank YOU, Amie! And apparently, we share opinions on blue cheese. Yuck… 😛 XD
Oh, one last thing….. THERE’S A GIVEAWAY Y’ALL!!!!! Yay!
